What is your passion? Passion is “a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something.” Are you letting anything hold you back from your passion? How does being passionate about what you do affect you? Here is a little science behind passion.

Story on Passion
I had indicated previously that my son, Jy, suffered from Guillain-Barre Syndrome and encephalitis at the end of 2015 after receiving the flu mist. He was hospitalized for almost 2 months. He was in a coma and quadriplegic. Well, he is back to playing soccer. It hasn’t been the easiest road for him. In the past, he was used to scoring many goals and starting on his soccer team. A few weeks ago, his team made it to the championships. He played about three minutes in two games. I talked to him about possibly playing another sport because soccer was fast for his brain, and he’s not as coordinated or explosive as he used to be. Jy indicated that he didn’t want to quit. He wanted to keep at it. He plans to be better than he was before. This is going to be an uphill battle, but I was so proud of his determination. He is passionate about soccer and doesn’t plan to give up. If you are passionate about something, don’t give up! See where your passion takes you.
